Crime project reaps reward
THE efforts of a programme aimed at tackling re-offending rates in North Lincolnshire have been rewarded with a national award.
The North Lincolnshire Respect Programme picked up the Youth Justice Award at the Shine A Light Award ceremony, honouring individuals and organisations that support the needs of children and young people.
The award was presented to a team of local authority partners, health officials and Humberside Police sergeant James Main at an event in London.
Introduced in 2010, the programme offers an alternative to issuing a formal reprimand and avoids the young person having a criminal record and aims to prevent young people under 18 years old re-offending.
